If you are an adult and have been granted UK citizenship, you attend a citizenship ceremony.
You'll be granted UK citizenship after swearing either the Oath or Affirmation of Allegiance and taking the Citizenship Pledge.
Invitation to a ceremony
You will receive a letter from the Home Office asking you to call to attend a ceremony.
Call us on 01202 633744 to book your place.
Our opening times are:
- Monday to Thursday: 9am to 4.30pm
- Friday: 9am to 4pm.
We hold ceremonies on the last working Monday of every month.
You must have your ceremony within 3 months of receiving your letter.
Ceremonies are held at the Poole Register Office.
We can arrange a private citizenship ceremony for a fee of £165, Monday to Friday, depending on availability.
